Turned forty, traveled and got tagged!

I haven't had a chance to update for about two weeks, well since getting home from CHA.
In that time, I had my fortieth birthday, drove to and from Southern Oregon (about 1600 miles) just the kids and I and got tagged by Christina!
My trip to Oregon was great, we were busy every second! The kids love it there, they swim, play with the dog (a huge mastiff named Duchess) ride the horses, Squizzy, Missy and Tony, and go rafting on the Rogue river. It was good to go out of town for a week and recharge, the kids needed it!

So I have been home a couple of days, getting the kids back and forth from tennis and playing in my scrap room. Laurel made the Skyline tennis team and might even be playing varsity, that would be a great experience for her.

So now that I am moderately caught up with what happened lets do this tagged thing!
1. FIRST NAME? Rebecca my nicknames are Becky, Becca, Bek and beck-n-call.
2. WHO WERE YOU NAMED AFTER? No one that I am aware of.
3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? 10 days ago on my fortieth b-day, the husband of my friend who passed away called me because he knew that she would want me to know that I was being thought of. How cool is that?
4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Yup, it gets me there.
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Rare roast beef.
6. KIDS? Four, Oldest son Tyler he is almost 17, oldest daughter Laurel just turned 15, Youngest daughter Chloe who is 13 and youngest son Carter who just turned 11.

8. DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? Nope, just can't get the hang of it. Blog is the closest I get. I have so many other things that this just isn't high enough on the must do's.
